In the end, we made the painful decision to head on to Laragne to be there in time for the Brit comp. It was torture leaving. Tolmin is one of the most beautiful places on earth and certainly one of my favorite flying sites/comps. The organizers do such a great job and you really get so much for your money. For 150€ you get a t-shirt, lunch every day, daily transport to launch and what I'm sure will be a fantastic party on Saturday night (that we will miss, sadly). I can't say enough good things about this comp...if only the weather had been a bit better. We also left Maria behind as she wanted to finish out the comp and then head to Austria before going back home to Colombia.
Of course as we finished packing up the car the sun came out and warmed up the gorgeous Soca Valley :-(
Here is a great video by Matjaz of what it could have looked like for us all week.
So tonight Kathryn and I are back in Bassano on our way to Laragne. We're hearing reports that the weather is supposed to be great for that one....keeping our fingers crossed.
